Week of 8/28/17

Happy Monday!

Hope you all had a great weekend! The schedule this week is packed with FUN and SWEAT! 

Since I had to cancel last week's 6pm class we need to recover that class 😉 so on Thursday we will have a triple threat class! I expect a loud "WOHOO!" Also on Friday we celebrate 3 years of TrueFit! so come and sweat! this is a free 2 hour class, so share this class with friends :)

Also save the date for Thursday 9/14 we are going to have another 90min Zumba class with a Mexican Fiesta with Charito! (Mexico Independence day is 9/16)  and I am trying to have other guest instructors, so keep your fingers crossed!  

Another date to save is for Saturday 9/16 I was invited for a fundraiser at St. Clemente Church in Hayward - for more info 

In September we are also schedule to do Zumba demos at the Castro Valley Festival on the weekend of 9/9 and 9/10 - currently Charito is confirming which day we will perform.  We were also invited to perform at the St. Clemente Festival on 2 days: 9/23 at 11:45am and 9/24 at 12:15pm 

I KNOW! Lots of fun coming up in September!

Let's talk about my accountability, last week was a dud for me -- I didn't do any weight lifting and I also wanted to start practicing a new quadrant for Strong, and did not.  Right now my biggest hurdle (or excuse?) is that I need to schedule my evenings accordingly.  I haven't been motivated, I get home...I am tired and just want to veg out.  I need to find my motivation.  You might think that is "OKAY" and it could be if that is what makes me happy.  But I need structure to feel good about myself...believe it or not when I am on top of my game I schedule "veg out" days and not just veg out all the time LOL.  So that's my goal, to structure my evenings so I can hit my goals.  

Have an awesome week and hope to dance with you!

Week of 8/21/17

Good morning and happy Monday! 
Here is this week's schedule:

Please note that there is no 6pm class on Thursday this week! I will make it up to guys next Thursday by having a 5pm Cize Live class :) *HIGH FIVE*

As the summer starts to end, this is a good time to take a moment to breath, and gather your thoughts as we start the last leg of the year.  Just go back and think of those 2017 goals that you set for your self in January and take stock of where you are.  One of my goals was to start a Strong class and I did, but another goal that I have not met is to consistently lift 2-3x a week.  Experts say You only need 21 days to create a habit and 90 days to reach a guess what? I am going to tackle this goal in these last 4 months of the year and will finish 2017 strong.  Feel free to share your re-commited goal with me or just re-commit to it on your own but don't let them go! 

Have a wonderful week, and I can't wait to dance with you guys!

FUN!

Have a fabulous week! and let's dance!

I am back from Convention! Week August 7, 2017

Happy Monday!

It's been a week since I have been back from Covention! Here is this week's schedule:

I have been back a week after convention, and I still haven't had a chance to just sit and think about what I learned and experience, but I will try my best to summarize for you :)

Thursday 7/27/17
  • Latin Urban what can I say? this was presented by Jhon Gonzales one of my favorite Zumba Jammers, and it was great.  I loved the music.  He gave us two choreographies to bring back to class, so watch out for these:

  • Latin Alternative - This is the music of my youth! LOVED it! she gave us 2 choreographies as well, BUT in the lecture part of the class she referenced a pop band, (rockish influence) called Menudo so I HAVE TO bring this song:
I got inspired by some of the moves LOL and made it so that it makes sense for Zumba.  

The presenter also gave us a song from Aterciopelados (I need to sit and remember this one) but basically is an angry song...we dont' care for the girl LOL 

She also gave us some tunes from Locos por Juana, I have done a song from them, so their sound might be familiar

There are other songs, that I am keeping in the back of my mind, and if I can't recall them, I am pretty sure I could get inspired and bring them slowly to class :)
  • Master Class with Donna Giffen - Love her! I only get to dance with her when I am at convention so her Master Class is a Must for me. I love her dramatics.  I "think" I may have a song from her MC - I will test it out (it's from memory LOL) 

Friday 7/28/17
  • Puerto Rican Flow -  another favorite, BUT I can't remember! it's so frustrating, I just rememer enjoying the if I was in an island.  But he did give us 2 choreographies, and I will try my best to remember them! *keep your fingers crossed*

  • Folk dances of India - this was a small session, but it was amazing.  I got 3 choreographies...nothing like they bollywood songs that I normally do.  More traditional, and I am hoping I can figure out the songs, and recall, because it was truly a good session and I loved it! 

  • Fitness Concert - No words to decribe it...the fitness part of it was like other years, just FUN to watch not necessarily to follow because you would be dancing on cement...BUT THEN Daddy Yankee came out and gave a full out 45min concert, I forgot I was on cement and just danced...I was choreographing on the spot! however if you ask me now, I can't remember a single step.
Saturday 7/29/17
  • Strong Master Class - With Ai Lee was awesome, I totally got my butt kicked. I got inspired to start learning new Quadrants for our class, so stay tuned!

  • Fighting Elements - Again with Ai Lee and her 2 Zj's I have choreo with the punching and kicking elements to it and I have small videos, so I should be able to bring these to you, just give me a few weeks!

  • House Experience - I think my brain was mush by this point.  I remember it was awesome, I took I am hoping I will be able to bring some to you :)

Sunday 7/30/17

  • Venenzuelan Bochinche - this was presented by the one and only Meli!!! and her Venenzuelan counterpart Rob :) Actually I took this session TWICE! I was able to catch the last hour after Folk dances of India, and then did the full class on Sunday.  This particular session really touched my heart...because of all the turmoil it was amazing to see all the Venenzuelan get together and DANCE!  and then seeing other people ( non Venenzuelan like myself) just dance along with was AWEinspiring.  It showed what Dance is all about and I was just happy to be there.  

Well this was a QUICK run through of my convention experience, just so many things :) 

Let's dance together this week! I'll be seeing you ❤❤
